Chiropractic Care

Gonstead Spinal Adjustments

The Gonstead Method has been shown to be the “gold standard” in chiropractic, a standard by which all other chiropractic techniques are measured. It is this superiority and specificity to correcting spinal problems that has drawn our doctors to the Gonstead Method, bringing the best in chiropractic treatment to the northwest suburbs. The Gonstead Method specifically focuses on the health of the disc. When a spinal bone becomes subluxated, the disc (shock absorber between the bones) can be compressed and bulge, thus irritating surrounding spinal nerves. The bone must be realigned for health to be restored. A specific Gonstead adjustment is the most natural, least invasive approach to correcting and improving overall health.

gonsteadThere are tremendous benefits in seeking a chiropractor trained in the Gonstead Method. It is also comforting to know that should you take a vacation or move to a new area, you can continue your quality care without interruption or change in style and technique. There is a worldwide referral network of qualified Gonstead chiropractors using the same methods of analysis, the same specific adjusting procedures, and who share the same goal — to correct the subluxations in your spine for the purpose of creating a healthier you! Dr. Van Ness is a 19 year member of the Gonstead Clinical Studies Society. For more information visit www.gonstead.com

Extremity Adjustments

extremityExtremity adjustments are chiropractic adjustments in joints that are not contained in the spine. Extremity adjustments are used in treating TMJ, carpal or tarsal tunnel syndrome, tendonitis, bursitis, and plantar fasciitis to name a few. Joint areas such as the shoulders, elbows, wrists, hips, knees, ankles, and feet can benefit from specific extremity adjustments.

Dr. Van Ness and Dr. Parkin have both received training in Mally Extremity Dyskinetics and Charrette Extremity Adjusting Protocols for the conservative management of extremity injuries. Dr. Van Ness and Dr. Parkin enjoy helping elite athletes and weekend warriors feel and play their best.

Cupping (Myofascial Decompression)

The therapy of cupping has been used in China for thousands of years.

Evidence of myofascial treatment using negative pressure cupping has evidence dating as far back as 281 AD. Most manual therapy techniques like massage, myofascial release and joint mobilization are compressive in nature. Myofascial decompression with cupping uses negative pressure to decompress adhesions, spots where the connective tissue is stuck, to allow a better flow for improved nutrient exchange. The pressure will cause an ischemic (low blood) response causing increased blood flow to the area to help with healing. The resulting circular bruising under the cup is a classic sign of cupping therapy.

Dr. Van Ness and Dr. Parkin have both been trained by Dr. Christopher Da Prato, who pioneered the use of cupping for sports performance prior to the 2016 Winter Olympics at UC San Francisco School of Medicine.
